Step 1
Answer:
d. Type I error.
Probability of accept a hypothesis when it is wrong is known as Type I error.
Step 2
Explanation:
Type I error, also known as a “false positive”: the error of rejecting a null. hypothesis when it is actually true. In other words, this is the error of accepting an. alternative hypothesis (the real hypothesis of interest) when the results can be. attributed to chance.
In statistical hypothesis testing, a type I error is the rejection of a true null hypothesis (also known as a "false positive" finding or conclusion. example: "an innocent person is convicted").

Suppose that the standard deviation of the tube life for a particular brand of TV picture tube is known to be \(\displaystyle\sigma={400}\), but that the mean operating life is not known. Overall, the operating life of the tubes is assumed to be approximately normally distributed.
For a sample of \(\displaystyle{n}={15}\), the mean operating life is \(\displaystyle\overline{{{X}}}={8900}\) hr. Determine (i) the 95 percent and (ii) the 90 percent confidence intervals for estimating the population mean.

When σ is unknown and the sample size is \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?

A paper reported a \(\displaystyle{\left({1}-\alpha\right)}\) confidence interval for the proportion of voters is (0.561,0.599) based on a sample of 2,056 people. However, the paper omitted the value of \(\displaystyle\alpha\). If you want to test the hypothesis that the proportion of voters is greater than \(\displaystyle{65}\%\) at \(\displaystyle{1}\%\) significance, find \(\displaystyle{z}_{{{c}{a}{l}{c}}}\) value for this problem? Please report your answer to 2 decimal places.
